Well, I got in from shooting my 2011 Martin Silencer and looked it over after I gave it a good wax. I noticed that the roto cups seem to have took off the camo dipping and have started to damage and what appears to be digging into both my top and bottom limbs. Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice or information would be much appreciated and beneficial. http://i582.photobucket.com/albums/ss264/kylecurtis04/silencer2.jpg

Looks like the tolerances are not right on this one. Either your cup is a tad too small or the limb is a tad too wide. Call costumer service and talk to them if you are concerned.

I've had the same thing happen with my Firecat. Called Martin, and they said it is perfectly normal. Said the tolerances are tight enough, that it should rub just like yours is showing. As long as it's not digging into the limb much, they said not to worry about it.

What about the fact that it wears the camo right off to metal?

I wouldn't be to happy bout it either. That shouldn't be an issue regardless off tolerance. I could understand if it was years down the road w sevral hundered or thousands of shots. But a new bow? Not acceptable IMO

Kyle, I've got about 3000 shots thru my Silencer now and I have a little scraping around the rotocup as well. About the same as you there. It doesn't appear to be doing anything other than scraping the camo off the limbs and definately not digging into the limbs in any way. I noticed that most of this scuffing occured when I was backing the limbs way down in order to take the string and cables off before I got my bow press. I don't think you have anything to worry about structurally and a brown Sharpie should be helpful for touchup in those areas. Hope that helps some.

Looks to be the film dip wearing. and not actually cutting or digging into the limb itself. If it IS digging into the limb Marin will correct it. :)

I checked it again. It is just wearing off the camo film. I appreciate all the info and input. It still kind of disappoints me that it wears the camo off, but I plan on getting it film dipped anyway in reaper camo.

Justin, dipping it in another camo will just compound the problem, unless they take the camo that's already on it off. Even then, you should probably expect the new camo to do the same thing the factory camo did.
